Awake, Thou Wintry Earth

Olwen Foulkes & Tabea Debus – Recorders
Kate Conway – Viola da Gamba

In this programme, Flauti d’echo celebrate the arrival of spring with music from Germany, England, France, and Italy. Cheeky cuckoos, blossoming flowers, dancing shepherds and buffeting winds frame a beautiful pastoral aria ‘Awake, Thou Wintry Earth’ by J.S. Bach. The recital will include music by Vivaldi, Handel, and Purcell alongside some lesser-known composers of the 17th and 18th Centuries.
